Freegan Boxes Pickup!

Originated in Birmingham, Freegan Boxes are a weekly act of protest against food waste that everyone can participate in; ready-made boxes filled by Sharehouse volunteers with groceries we intercept. A family of four can save 10kg of food from being wasted each week for £10. That’s on average 520kg of food a year! Prices cover our costs of interception, processing, quality control, and logistics. All food is Pay As You Feel (PAYF) and collected from your local Sharehouse or hub (see below). Each (full) box contains approx. £20 – £30 worth of food at RRP.  Prices cover cost of interception, processing, quality control, and logistics.

What does Freegan mean? Can I be a Freegan?

Freeganism originally as a concept was an amalgamation of free and vegan; living without taking part in large scale corporate economies with what you can get for free or by swapping and sharing resources. (You definitely don’t need to be vegan to benefit though, our boxes are suitable for all!) It gathered a lot of attention through people diving in bins to rescue food. We have built great relationships with supermarkets and suppliers so we don’t need to go bin diving anymore, but the principle and goal remains the same: get as many people involved with saving food waste as possible in a way that’s accessible to all!


“I love saving food and reducing waste with my Freegan Box. The surprise element is great, to see which food we’re going to get to use each week and even treats we wouldn’t usually get from the supermarket.”

Alice, Freegan Box Customer

Due to very high demand, we are not currently taking on any further Freegan Box customers. We have over 100 on the Wakefield waiting list alone. We will update you once we start to take on further customers. Thank you for your patience! If you require any further information please email fbp@trjfp.com

Kindness Sharehouse Pickup & Make Friends

Opening in September 2018, our Kindness Sharehouse in Wakefield is the central hub for all our activities and the local community. We intercept perfectly edible food from over 5000 sq. miles and bring it back to be processed and quality controlled, before we #FeedBelliesNotBins.

There are no prices on any of our produce. Everything is available Pay As You Feel. Our customers can equally access food no matter where they come from or what they have to give. This aims to eradicate the stigma attached to food poverty or food waste. Kindness Sharehouse opens 6 days a week to the public and is supported by an incredible team of volunteers. Do your shopping, collect your Freegan Box, volunteer your time…

Schools Kindness Into Schools

Since inception in 2013, TRJFP has prevented over 5,000 tons of food from becoming waste – the equivalent of 11.9 million meals. Schools have played a big part in contributing to this, and from September 2019, we launch: Kindness into Schools.

We’ve listened to schools, teachers, students and parents, and have created a model designed to cater for any school’s needs.

Each week, we will provide 40Kg of surplus food (40,000g), the equivalent of 4 x crates of food. This food can be used for any purpose; a market stall, provisions towards school breakfasts, to subsidise after-school dinners, or simply as food parcels for chosen families. Schools will now have much more freedom to choose as they see fit with the produce we supply.

PAYF Cafes Sit In!

Since inception in 2013 of our original “Pay As You Feel” café – Armley Junk-tion, TRJFP has inspired over 120 projects to form worldwide, stopping thousands of tons of food from becoming waste. Our cafes form communal spaces for people to come together from all walks of life, eat nutritious food made from surplus produce and give back what they feel the service is valued at, through our PAYF model.

WHY PAYF?

Food is valuable. And not just financially. Asking people to Pay As They Feel (PAYF) mean they engage with the real value of ingredients and appreciate the resources that go in food production, transportation and provision. There are no prices on any of our produce or menus. PAYF invites people to question their perception of waste and to reconnect with their food as a finite yet infinitely versatile resource.

It means people who may otherwise struggle to afford food can access fresh, nutritional produce and meals, contributing their skills and time in lieu of payment. Our cafes all over the UK are community spaces open to all keen to reconnect not only with food, but with each other. We feed human beings, no stigma attached.

Food Delivery Service Level Agreements

We know how difficult it can be to run a business/charity and cover the costs to feed your guests, partners or end users. We have designed simple Service Level Agreements to support your organisation with a weekly delivery of food which suits your needs.
